Live music photography combines my two big passions - does it get any better than that?! :)
As an actively gigging musician myself I understand live performance. I know what’s going to happen and when.. If the song starts in B, then at some point there could be an E, or a D, so the guitarist will put his fingers…*click* …there! I can read when a phrase is ending and predict the movement before it happens.. and I can feel when the moments of pathos will evolve, and I have the technical know how to capture it.
I have to pinch myself sometimes… I get to do what I love, and I get to meet and photograph amazing people all the time.
I LOVE my job :)
Not only that but that wealth of experience means I can make a tip-top music video too…
